Diana and I went for the second year in a row to the Fort Lauderdale Beer Festival.  It is a great location in downtown Fort Lauderdale; all the streets are closed off and there and tons of vendors with beer and food.  This year they also had bands playing continuously. 

We arrived an hour early because we didn't buy tickets in advance.  We were the first people to arrive, but the moment we stood by the ticket counter as the first people in line it seemed as though hundreds of people joined our line over the next 5 minutes.  Diana and I were so incredibly fortunate too.  We were the firts to buy our tickets and so we asked where to go and a guy seemed confused and told us to just go on in.  Well, once inside we were shocked that for the next 20-30 minutes it was empty inside!!!  We walked from booth to booth trying every beer with absolutely no wait time.  Then all at once people just poured in.  We realized that since we were the first people to get our tickets that they let us in, but must have then held everyone else until 7PM.  It turned out that we had almost a half hour of VIP time at the Beer Festival.  Once the people came in it was so crowded and we had to wait in lines to get beverages.
